The London Film Festival had its regular dose of Richard Linklater this past weekend when the director brought his latest film, Last Flag Flying to the capital. One of the leading actors, Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, came along for the ride and we on the red carpet of the London Film Festival Premiere to speak with them.
The film stars Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne, and Steve Carell and tells the story of Vietnam War veterans Larry “Doc” Shepherd, Sal Nealon and the Rev. Richard Mueller as they reunite after thirty years to bury Doc’s son, a young Marine killed in Iraq. Forgoing burial at Arlington National Cemetery, Doc and his old buddies take the casket on a bittersweet trip up the coast to New Hampshire. Along the way, the three men find themselves reminiscing and coming to terms with the shared memories of a war that continues to shape their lives.
